May 2012 Rain

I was keeping track of the measureable rain at my home during the month of May. We have rain gauge in the front yard and I wrote down the values on a post it note until I had time to total them up.

0.125 Monday
0.750 Thursday
2.125 Saturday
1.500 Wednesday-Thursday
2.000 Memorial Day weekend
6.5 inches of measurable rain

We started in a drought rate (acording to the weather service) this spring and the month of May almost brought us back to normal.
